The G-men are coming off a tough divisional game and now must take on the Jekyll and Hyde Jaguars. This emotional let down will effect NY whether they admit it or not and they also lost Nicks for a few weeks to injury. He joins third down specialist Steve Smith on the sidelines, but even after accounting for all these factors NY still matchup very favorably against JAX. Eli will have more than enough time to find the open guy and the running game will once again play a significant role. JAX is god awful bad in red zone/third down defense and rarely win the turnover battle. This is not good if you are facing a feisty NY defense. JAX will need to rely heavily on MJD to sustain drives and put them in scoring position because they are in big trouble in the air. NY will get a lot of pressure on Garrard and make life miserable for him on third and long. I can see NY covering the standard spread, but they are in a great spot to tease down. Prediction: Bank BAL -1.5 & NYG -2.5.
Ravens -1.5 & PIT PK
